On the DVD there are 3 deleted scenes: One of which is an extended sequence where the "crew" talks about Melvin's love life, and how Crunch is going to rent porno that night. The second deleted scene is where Melvin calls Crunch and it shows Vince dressing up in drag, and the third one is where the killer Melvin crew stops at Crunch's and Vince comes in wearing a dress.

Indeed Mark Wahlberg is a bit cack in most of his films, but The Big Hit is a masterpiece of comedy. The action is fun, but is not meant to be taken seriously. I think that some people might have watched this film expecting a standard action film, in which case I can understand their disappointment. It's just good fun and Lou Diamond Phillips is brilliant. His over-the-top performance is perfect and is something I'll never forget.
The Big Hit is one of those films where you either get it or you don't. If you don't then I can understand how it might seem a bit two-dimensional. However, anyone who hasn't seen it should take a chance.
